ABSTRACT: What's a forward thinking guy like me to do with a future ex recording studio? How does he incorporate more cutting edge art and music into his plan?
Hello my name is Matthew Aidekman and I need your advice. Something Adam Kendall said has stuck in my mind for a long while. I told him I owned a recording studio. He exclaimed, "people still go to those?" For the last year and a half, I've been hearing a chorus of 'yes'. Estate recording hasn't shut up in weeks. It's a great success. We turn record making from a DIY Recording "learning experience" in someone's basement into a luxury vacation that artists will never forget. We're friends they never leave. They leave with a product that never disappoints. It's not BS. We have no marketing department.
But it's not enough.
As a Maxer, I agree with Adam. In spite of us providing a great product, he's right. Great sounds are impossible with out experience but more and more, good sounds flow like water. (or sewage for our fellow Jersey residents) No sense harping on it. Soon, business models which refuse to adapt will be relegated to a sort of specialty boutique market. Uninformed and increasingly discerning clientele is not enough for me. The question of course becomes how to adapt. I've always wanted my studio to transcend the old dusty local music scene. I love my clientele but I'd love to transcend the band stickers, black rubber, black t-shirts and gaffers tape of the traditional music industry. I've always been truly inspired by this board. I want to contribute like Cycling, HarvestWorks, ElectroTap or Ircam. I want to facilitate camaraderie and community, make musical matches, and help forward thinking artists and musicians. if not all of that then some. I've been blessed with a great asset. What now?
What's a forward thinking guy like me to do with a future ex recording studio? How does he incorporate more cutting edge art and music into his plan? Comments, suggestions, volunteers, opportunities, ramblings, and thoughts are all welcome. I've got some of my own but I want yours.
